Nation's First Certificate Program in Family Business
UC will soon boast the only U.S. business college in the U.S. to offer a certificate in family and private business, thanks to a $1 million endowed professorship by John and Gloria Goering, founders of UC's Goering Center for Family and Private Business.
"Many of our students will bear the pressure of taking over their family's business or even starting up their own after they graduate," according to Sid Barton, the Lindner College of Business professor who will lead the new program. "By adding an academic and research arm to the Goering Center, we can give students a head start in understanding how to tackle the unique challenges of owning and working with private businesses."
